Default Formal Night Dresses...

What is considered formal on a cruise ship? Does it have to be floor length or can you wear a knee length dress too? Thanks for all of your help!

formal night you'll see anything from cocktail dresses & blouses with dress pants to the other extreme of a prom dress. if you just had your prom and you have your dress, why not get one more use out of it and wear it for formal night if you like to get dressed up? but i certainly wouldn't go out and buy a 300 dollar prom dress for one formal night on a cruise. a knee length cocktail dress will do just fine.

I always wear knee length cocktail dresses because I could never fit prom dresses in my suitcase.

i have always found knee length dresses to be the most convienent, and i have found that there are more people dressed like that opposed to prom style dresses

when i went i saw a lot of girls wearing their prom dresses, but they may have just been trying to get more use out of them. I bought a knee-length dress for like 15 dollars and it works fine, i also saw some people in just dress pants & a nice shirt...so pretty much anything but jeans goes...i don't think they'd deny you admission

it doesn't matter, you should use you own judgement, if you like a dress thats knee length and looks nice wear it! (or vice versa). The last cruise i went on I wore my dress from my formal at school and its floor length, but this year I found a dress thats knee length that I'm gonna wear. Personally, I would get a knee length dress because I think I'm more comfortable in them and you probably wont be as hot on the ship because you wouldn't be wearing a heavy prom dress.
